We’re delighted to announce that following our annual inspection on 29 November 2019 that RammSanderson’s status as a railway industry approved supplier has been retained.

The Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) is run by the industry, for the industry, under the stewardship of the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB.) It is intended to help suppliers like RammSanderson sell in to the GB rail industry by providing an open, fair and transparent way for them to be formally recognised as capable providers of products and services

RISQS remains central to the safe and cost-effective procurement of railway products and services, providing assurance for 110-plus buyers including Network Rail and TfL to do business with confidence with over 4,300 suppliers.

Commenting on the accreditation, Ramm Sanderson Director, Nick Sanderson said, “We have developed an enviable reputation for continually investing in our people and the technology we use to enable us to provide bespoke and unique solutions to overcome ecological issues on railway projects.”

He added, “As a long standing Sentinel RISQS approved contractor and having now worked on a number of Network Rail Managed Infrastructure sites we bring a wealth of experience to all rail projects and have a team of 10 dedicated in-house personal track safety (PTS) qualified staff and offer an experienced workforce capable of undertaking any rail project.”
